PEPFAR's annual planning process is done either at the country (COP) or regional level (ROP).
PEPFAR's programs are implemented through implementing partners who apply for funding based on PEPFAR's published Requests for Applications.
Since 2010, PEPFAR COPs have grouped implementing partners according to an organizational type. We have retroactively applied these classifications to earlier years in the database as well.
Also called "Strategic Areas", these are general areas of HIV programming. Each program area has several corresponding budget codes.
Specific areas of HIV programming. Budget Codes are the lowest level of spending data available.
Expenditure Program Areas track general areas of PEPFAR expenditure.
Expenditure Sub-Program Areas track more specific PEPFAR expenditures.
Object classes provide highly specific ways that implementing partners are spending PEPFAR funds on programming.
Cross-cutting attributions are areas of PEPFAR programming that contribute across several program areas. They contain limited indicative information related to aspects such as human resources, health infrastructure, or key populations programming. However, they represent only a small proportion of the total funds that PEPFAR allocates through the COP process. Additionally, they have changed significantly over the years. As such, analysis and interpretation of these data should be approached carefully. Learn more
Beneficiary Expenditure data identify how PEPFAR programming is targeted at reaching different populations.
Sub-Beneficiary Expenditure data highlight more specific populations targeted for HIV prevention and treatment interventions.
PEPFAR sets targets using the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) System - documentation for which can be found on PEPFAR's website at https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. As with most data on this website, the targets here have been extracted from the COP documents. Targets are for the fiscal year following each COP year, such that selecting 2016 will access targets for FY2017. This feature is currently experimental and should be used for exploratory purposes only at present.
Years of mechanism: 2010
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
IntraHealth International (IHI) is an international NGO supporting the MOHSW NACP to strengthen, expand, and sustain high quality GBV, VMMC, and HTC services for HIV prevention. HTC will be implemented in Arusha, Kigoma, Geita, Mara, Mwanza, Shinyanga and Simiyu regions targeting individuals attending health care facilities, couples, VMMC clients, pediatric patients, and key populations. HTC programming will focus on institutionalizing quality of care, building local capacity, increasing access to HTC services, orienting HCWs to new guidelines, and strengthening referral and linkages to care and treatment centers (CTCs). VMMC will be implemented in Mara, Shinyanga, and Simiyu targeting 10-29 year olds. GBV services will be implemented in Mara and one other priority region, TBD.
1. To increase access to optimum quality HTC services through strengthening HTC, GBV, and VMMC services.
2. To support the MOHSW/NACP to expand comprehensive VMMC services for HIV prevention.
3. To support the MOHSW/NACP to develop, disseminate, and operationalize guidelines and tools for quality assurance (QA) of HTC services.
4. To strengthen referrals and linkages to prevention, care and treatment services through partnership with MOHSW/NACP and partners.
5. To integrate GBV response services into existing facility-based services and expand these to additional facilities.
IHI’s strategies will be aligned with the National Health Sector HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan (HSHSP) and other national policies and guidelines. IHI’s FY 2013 EA DSP UEs were reviewed and found to be comparable to similar partners; expenditures reported were in line with programmatic priorities and approved budgets.
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
